Potato Patty Cakes

If you're looking for a naan, wrap, bread, or pizza base substitute–this is a wonderful gluten-free healthy single ingredient hack you can enjoy with so many of your favorite toppings. For this feature, I made a bright, vibrant and citrusy guacamole treat that you can enjoy as a main course or serve as a colorful appetizer. Feel free to explore toppings like traditional pizza style tomato sauce, mushrooms, peppers or even a green herby pesto. You can make larger flat cakes and wrap your favorite sandwich fixings inside. You can either bake a batch of these, or cook on a skillet like pancakes if you don't have an oven. 

Potatoes are abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Help keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution. If for whatever reason you have an allergy to potatoes, you can make this recipe with cauliflower, or squash. 

Potato Patty Cakes

adopted from Medical Medium 

  • 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and diced
    • or cauliflower, squash, sweet potato or Japanese potato
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • fresh made guacamole (mashed avocado, onion, cilantro, lime and garlic)
  • fresh veggies of choice (leafy kale, sliced sweet bell peppers, olives, broccoli, tomatoes, or whatever cooked or raw veggies you love)
    • you can also make a more traditional pizza topping like MM features in their post
Preheat oven to 400 degrees or skip if you're skillet cooking these. Bring a pot of water to a boil and steam potatoes for 5-10 minutes, until soft. Remove and cool completely. Place the potatoes in a bowl together with garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano. Mash with a fork or potato masher until smooth. Using a 1/8 cup measure, or just eyeballing with your hands, form the mixture into 9 flat patties about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Place on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or cook each patty on a skillet as you would pancakes (cooking evenly on both sides). Top with toppings of choice and enjoy right away or bake again if you're using more of a traditional pizza topping. Enjoy!
